  • Lyrics
  • New Found Glory released this standalone single in which they celebrate two decades as a rock act. The song is accompanied by a nostalgic music video reflective of the band's enduring career. Guitarist Chad Gilbert said:

    "'20 Years From Now' is a song we wrote and recorded during the Makes Me Sick album sessions. We loved the song and felt it stood out in a different way than the rest, so instead of squeezing it on the album, we wanted to give it a life of it's own."
  • Gilbert explained the song's meaning:

    "If you have seen us on this recent 20 Years Of Pop Punk tour, then you got a first listen as it was our intro to the concert. We have learned so many lessons over the 20 years of this band, but the underlining meaning of the song is about letting go of worry to feel true freedom.

    When you reflect on your life, you realize how arguments, pride, and the worry of proving yourself never changed or fixed anything. Failure and missteps help refine your character and make you wiser. All you truly need to worry about is waking up each day and to try to be the best version of yourself. We feel very lucky that when we wake up we still get to be in this band."
